This route is for experienced Single Ply Roofing operatives. Many single ply installers are highly skilled, but have no formal qualifications to prove it. The OSAT route can enable experienced workers to gain the Level 2 Vocational Qualification (VQ) Applied Waterproof Membranes – Single Ply Roofing, whilst carrying on with their daily work.
An experienced installer should be able to complete an OSAT within 3-6 months if they can gather all the relevant evidence. OSATs should take no longer than 12 months.
There are no courses to attend! An experienced, qualified SPRA accredited assessor will visit you in the workplace, assess your skills and provide training towards the qualifications if required. The assessor will advise on how to gather the necessary evidence from the workplace and how to build a portfolio to achieve the VQ. It is important to remember that the learner must be working on single ply roofing projects during the OSAT to generate the evidence and performing a role where the mandatory units are achievable.
Once you have gained your Level 2 VQ, you will then be able to apply for a blue skilled worker CSCS card which demonstrates your competence to work on site
